Tests and treatments
Upper and lower jaw correction
- When? If bite misalignment and/or jaw bone position cannot be corrected by moving the upper or lower jaw bone alone, both jaws will require correction. This can treat more extensive misalignments and major asymmetries.
- What is it? After the upper and lower jaws have been set to an ideal position, the surgeon fixates them in their new positions with titanium plates and screws.
- How? The entire procedure is performed through the mouth.
